I’m getting more organized this year and that includes making something to display my jewellery where I can see it, so I’ll be prompted to wear it more often. I made two frames, one for my mom and one for me, and it cost me approximately $20 for both. This will alternate if you already have some of these items or you can find a better price. You can also compensate for the cost if you make additional ones and sell them. (If I were to sell the ones I made, the larger one would be $35 and the smaller one $30, simply b/c it was painted).

What you will need:

THRIFT STORE:
Vintage and/or carved wood frames (Bible’s For Missions $2.00 each in the wharehouse, ask clerk for assistance, prices may vary)
Vintage Door Knobs to match frame (you may need to repaint them to match)

WAL-MART:
Krylon Aerosol Spray Paint in Brilliant Gold (or another metallic of your choice) [the hardware cloth already comes in silver, so repaint it to match your frame as desired]
OPTIONAL: Hot Glue Gun (depending on the thickness of the base of your door knobs, they may not screw on all the way b/c of the tight space)

HARDWARE STORE:
Hardware Cloth (smallest roll was approx. $7.99)
1/8″ or 3mm Peg Board (smallest size and you can ask them to cut it down to desired sizes for you)

DOLLAR STORE:
Acrylic Paint
OPTIONAL: Sand Paper (My door knobs needed to be sanded down in order for the paint to adhere)
OPTIONAL: Hot glue for glue gun

PAINT STORE (that sells wallpaper and gives samples):
FREE samples of wallpaper (if you cannot find desired pattern or colour, you can choose a plain white with or without embossing and paint yourself)

GARAGE/ TOOL SHED:
Pliers
Snips
Hammer
Electric Hand Drill
Drill Bits (for Pre-Drilling the holes for your door knobs to prevent your frame from cracking)

Square bit (to hammer staples into frame if they’re longer)

Electric Saw or Chop Saw (to cut your boards to desired length if they don’t do it at the hardware store)
